Hi there. From the description you have provided, this is probably the result of a failed door ajar light switch. The door ajar switch is part of the door latch assembly. It may have to be replaced as an assembly. It could also be from a short in the door ajar light circuit that is also causing problems with other vehicle electronics. If you would like to have an expert pinpoint the problem, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the Door Ajar Light and follow through with any repairs that are needed.
